BikeExchange look to Matthews to deliver in Milano-Sanremo
Third place finisher in 2015, Michael Matthews will lead BikeExchange this weekend as they hunt for a second victory in the iconic monument Milano-Sanremo.
After a strong showing last week in Paris-Nice, his first race of the 2021 season, the 30-year-old Australian has displayed good early season form and will have an impressive BikeExchange roster built around him, fully committed to the plan.
“I will arrive at Milano-Sanremo after a strong week at Paris-Nice. We had great work from all the team, and it was really good for me, both physically and also mentally to be back with my GreenEDGE teammates”, said Matthews.
“Going to my next challenge of Milano-Sanremo, I feel even more motivated to do well and our target is to fight to arrive until the last few meters at the front and play our best chances for victory. It will only be my second race of the 2021 season, but I feel good, and we will give our best shot at this unique and special race.”
